Reduce Wasted Compressed Air With Ultrasonic Leak Detection and Repair

Compressed air is a vital utility for every company, and it’s essential to maximize the full potential of every system. With rising energy costs, it’s important to operate compressed air equipment as efficiently as possible and minimize leak losses.

Leak Chart Size vs Cost per Year

Leaks can be a significant source of wasted energy in industrial compressed air systems, presenting several challenges and issues including:

  • Wasting 20-30% of the compressor’s output
  • Increased compressed air operating costs
  • Increased compressed air maintenance costs

Proactive leak detection and repair can reduce leaks to less than 10% of compressor output. Creating a leak repair and prevention program is vital in maintaining the efficiency, reliability, stability, and cost effectiveness of any compressed air system.

A Zorn Trained Technician will conduct a survey using ultrasonic detection equipment to evaluate for compressed air leaks, including:

  • Identifying
  • Tagging
  • Repairing
  • Tracking
  • Logging
  • Verifying

The inspection analyzes your leak loss and estimates current annual costs of any leaks, based on your current energy costs. After assessing the results, a trained technician can repair tagged leaks in accessible areas such as pipe fittings, poly tubing, quick connects, hose connections, filter regulator lubricators, and auto drains. Our team of leak detection experts will work with you to take advantage of Focus on Energy and Com Ed incentive programs.
